    Art Gallery Temporarily Closed

    January 24, 2024 – During the recent extreme weather in our area, a portion of the ceiling in The Reser’s lobby, and art galleries on both floors, sustained water damage due to an internal sprinkler pipe break in the ceiling on the second floor.

    The good news is that the damage to the building is cosmetic, not structural, and it was contained to the southeast side of the building. The Mainstage Theater, the stage, seating areas, The Lab, Pavilion, and administrative offices were not affected. Plans for repair are underway. We are grateful that no one was injured. Sadly, some artwork was damaged in all three gallery spaces on the first and second floors.

    Thank you for your well wishes as we have been evaluating the extent of the damage to the artwork. We appreciate the concern and offers to help when needed. We are thankful to have such amazing support from our dedicated volunteers, and the community. We are also grateful to Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue who were the first responders, the City of Beaverton’s facilities team, and our staff members for their quick response to this incident. They were all heroes to prevent further damage.

    We regret to inform you that the Art Gallery will be temporarily closed. All performances and events in the rest of the building will move forward as planned. We are eager to welcome visitors back into the gallery as soon as possible.

    To honor our current exhibiting artists, we have rescheduled the exhibition, Dialogues: An Emerging Artist Showcase, to reopen in early September. This will allow us to present their work in the best possible way and celebrate their achievements. It’s also the perfect opportunity for the community to vote on their favorite artwork, so we can announce the People’s Choice Award in October during our First Friday celebration. We appreciate your patience and support during this difficult time.

    Please stay tuned by signing up for the gallery newsletter and following us on social media (Facebook, Instagram) for more information on this and our upcoming exhibitions.

    As always, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our gallery staff at gallery@thereser.org. We look forward to seeing you all again soon!
